    Goofing around with Ares...

    By having an app I don't have to resize the screen.
    Plus I superimposed 3 links on the ds2.htm page to change to a higher resolution and framerate as well as a brighter video.

    Try ebay. Search Rovio...

    Doh! You meant the app. See reply below. But thanks for the encouragement.

    Are you going to release this app, maybe via the Web feed?

    I'd need to clean up everywhere I've hard-coded my ip address / user name/ password etc. Thing is I haven't a clue how to do all that stuff properly. These are literally my 1st apps after flunking out of the Ares tutorial.

    well it looks cool -- hopefully you or someone else will be able to make an ap for the masses

    thanks

    I'd call it alpha at this moment, as right now you'd only be able to control my Rovio unless you tweak the code.

    Pretty easy actually to replace my ip address, user name, password with your own via Ares.

    I can walk anyone through it.

    If you wouldn't mind posting the code somewhere, I'm sure someone would be able to make use of it. I'm not a developer, but I'd even probably give a try at hacking it.

    Thanks! This is very cool stuff...

    Sounds good. But unless you have a Rovio to test it with, I'd guess I'd have to test your code whenever you change something. Otherwise you'd be working semi-blind as you'd not see the results... Unless maybe you use it as a webcam viewer app.

    ToDo:

    1) Preferences Scene to hold:
    • IP address
    • Port#
    • User Name
    • Password
    This can then all be concatenated to one line:
    Code:
    http://username:password@ipaddress:port/mobile/webpage.htm
    2) A way to make cgi calls without opening a new browser card.
    For example I put in the following commands via html links to clean up the video in the LS version (low speed), or change the frame rate.
    Code:
    http://username:password@ipaddress:port/ChangeResolution.cgi?ResType=2
    
    and
    
    http://username:password@ipaddress:port/ChangeFramerate.cgi?Framerate=20
    The API for more commands is in the OP.

    Just sent you a Private Message (PM) with your username and password.
    Have Fun. Let me know if you'd like to play some more after your username expires.

    Kinda weird having people actually drive my Rovio around my living room.

    I probably didn't think the demo idea through all the way.

    My Internet access (maybe just Router) went down for a few hours yesterday. Hopefully not due to too many external incoming connections. I hope my internet provider doesn't get mad at me.

    Also, there's a "Send Snapshot" function that emails me a picture of what the Rovio is looking at.

    Here's an example from today:


    Looks like I need to vacuum...

    I've asked for help in making it so others can input their own web address; so hopefully all Rovio owners can use this app.

    This looks great, but caveat emptor: I bought a Rovio off of Woot.com almost 2 months back. The power adapter went fubar after a few weeks, and they have not replaced it yet...they say the part is on backorder. Apparently this is a fairly common problem with Rovios. The company is not reachable by phone and they only respond to email when they feel like it. I'm not saying...I'm just saying...
